Want to tidy up your room but do not know where to start?
In that case, the Japanese gaming company Akatsuki Inc. just released the perfect mobile game for you!
It’s called “KonMari Spark Joy.”
It is a game that allows you to enjoy and practically experience the KonMari method, a special method of cleaning up Marie Kondo, also known as KonMari. The details of this game will be introduced later, but there are puzzles in the game based on Zen, an important cultural concept in Japan, which makes it more fun for fans of Japanese culture.
What is the KonMari method?
Many of you are already familiar with the KonMari method, but let’s introduce it to you in case. KonMari is the nickname of Marie Kondo, who is known as a Japanese cleaning professor. Her revolutionary method of cleanup is called the KonMari method. She teaches her clients to fill their homes with joy by cleaning up. Her books and methods are very popular both in Japan and outside of Japan because they are easy to follow. The KonMari method has even been mentioned in a series where KonMari visits several homes in Los Angeles.
“KonMari: The Magic of Cleaning Up to Make Life More Exciting” is available exclusively on Netflix. If you watch this show besides playing the game, it can get even more fun.
According to Press release, the story begins when a girl who has just been crushed meets KonMari. Of course, KonMari’s avatar is similar to Marie Kondo.
Through her meeting with KonMari, the girl faces her inner self and embarks on a journey to find what is important to her. During her journey, she visits people with various problems, and as she cleans up their cluttered premises, she gradually grows. What will the girl’s choice be when she’s done cleaning up all the mess?
After finishing the game, another story awaits about the boy who was the girl’s lover (sold separately).
One of the puzzles is a Zen-based expression for “another world inside the mind.” When you clean up the cluttered rooms, a puzzle with similar beauty and serenity as a Japanese rock garden reveals itself from another world.
A Japanese rock garden tries to express natural elements, such as mountains and rivers, using carefully arranged rocks and stones. Rock gardens are often built in zen temples, so they are also known as zen gardens in English. By collecting these puzzles, the girl will regain peace in her heart, and cherry blossoms bloom slowly in her dark world.
IN Press release, Marie Kondo gave the following comments about her game.
“I never dreamed I would be involved in making a game because I’ve spent my whole life cleaning up. The lively sweetness of the characters (the futon character is my favorite) and the colorful world of the game made it visually exciting.
I hope this game will be a great opportunity for many people to learn about the KonMari method and the fun of cleaning up. If you are looking for a way to take a break from cleaning up, try this game. “
Price: 410 yen
